While she was promoting her new gig as co-host on ABC’s Greatest Hits with AOL’s Build, Ballerini accidentally spilled the beans that her headlining tour is in the works when asked how her summer is going opening for Rascal Flatts.
“It started last weekend actually. I do that through September and then I do a headline tour. I’m going to try that out for the first time later this year. Should be fun!” she said, not noticing her error immediately.
Ballerini later tweeted about her slip:
Hehe. Totally wasn't suppose to say Anything. Surprise. Details soon ❤️ https://t.co/h0kqAp6NLI— Kelsea Ballerini (@KelseaBallerini) June 23, 2016
The relative newcomer is full of surprises as of late. Recently, the singer stopped by the Bluebird Cafe while a fan was performing his answer to her song.
Twelve-year-old Landon Wall was on the stage explaining his response song to Ballerini’s “Peter Pan” when the singer herself appeared.
“Me and my dad were driving down the road the other day and we heard Kelsea Ballerini’s ‘Peter Pan,’” he explained. “There’s two sides to every story so we wondered, ‘What would Peter Pan’s side of the story sound like?’”
As Wall closed the song, his eyes widened as Ballerini appeared in the back of the Bluebird. “Oh my gosh!” he said as she walked toward him.
“Now, if you’re going to sing the response I get to sing mine too,” Ballerini said to a stunned audience as she gave him a hug.
